*To advance the research in multimedia search and database management with novel applications*


Heng Tao is a Professor of Computer Science and an ARC Future Fellow in the School of Information Technology & Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland. He obtained his BSc with 1st class Honours and PhD from Department of Computer Science, National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2000 and 2004 respectively. He then joined the University of Queensland as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader, and became a Professor in late 2011. His research interests mainly include Multimedia Search, Pattern Recognition, Computer Vision, and Big Data Management on spatial, temporal, multimedia and social media databases. Heng Tao has extensively published and served on program committees in most prestigious international publication venues of interests. He received the Chris Wallace Award for outstanding Research Contribution in 2010 conferred by Computing Research and Education Association, Australasia. He has served as a PC Co-Chair for ACM Multimedia 2015 and currently is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE). He holds a position of Visiting Professor in Nagoya University and National University of Singapore.


Research Interests
